The San Diego Law Review (SDLR) is an academic journal dedicated to the publication of articles that widens the realm of academic education.  Created in 1964, the Law Review is committed to publishing articles and essays written by academics, judges, and legal practitioners from all over the world.  The San Diego Law Review is an entirely student-run organization.  All articles are selected, edited, and published by the review’s Editorial Board.  Additionally, almost every issue contains at least one comment or casenote authored by a University of San Diego law school student, as selected by the Editorial Board.
